I just can’t stop playing around with these rulers, and feathered wreaths are an easy “centerpiece” to frame with different designs that are based on framework that is easily created using rulers. Here’s a photo of one I made earlier this week:
I’m going to do a blog post next week that shows a step-by-step process of how I created the quilting that came after the ruler work, but Ernie and I finally shot a video tutorial that shows you just how easy it is to do ruler work if you are a sit-down quilter, and it’s the ruler work that was done on this small wall hanging that’s shown on this video. If you thought only long arm quilters using a frame system could do this kind of ruler work, you are in for some exciting times! You can do this on your home sewing machine as long as you have a ruler foot and use rulers/templates that are at least 1/4 inch thick. The video is at the end of this blog post, but if you’re interested in ruler work, the very best source of info on it for the home quilter is Amy’s Free Motion Quilting Adventures blog which you can find right here. If you don’t already follow her blog, now’s the time to start! Now here’s the video; hope you enjoy it!
Mind blowing. #quiltlove and ideas are now spinning out my “little” creative brain. Thanks for the inspiration. This really helps to clarify what you’ve been up to for using rulers on a domestic machine for FMQ. I’m totally amazed and inspired and want to create. I think the possibilities will be endless.
Oh, that’s beautiful on the dark blue! The threads just glow.

That was so amazing, I have been trying to use my rulers on my machine, but have some trouble with holing the ruler and moving the material. I think I am pushing down to hard on ruler. I will have to keep trying and play with it. Thanks for the video I learnrd a lot can’t wait for the next one! I also have been playing with my embroidery designs. My question on the embroidery do you put any stabilizer in your center designs!
Hi Patsy, What a great idea. I called my Bernina dealer to see if they are going to have a ruler foot for us Bernina gals and she said she believes they are working on one but that she would call and ask them. I hope they get one This looks just great. Thanks for leading the way.
